I'm on my 11th week of my fishless cycle. It's been a looong process, but as long as I saw progress in the time it took my tank to process ammonia, I stayed patient.
But now I think it may have stalled!!! It currently takes about 5 days for my tank to process about 2+ppm of ammonia. It was the same two weeks ago. It hasn't been speeding up like it used to.
I never saw NitrItes, but I think I missed the spike. I added Tetra SafeStart at the beginning...didn't help, but it may have done something so I didn't see any NitrItes.
My NitrAtes are through the roof...over 80ppm.
What should I do? Would a pwc do any good, or would it harm my cycle?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
